Safara Linen Blazer
Safara Linen Blazer
Perhaps a bit of useless trivia, but in case you didn’t know, ‘Safari’ comes from the Arabic word safara, which means ‘to travel’. Ahhh, to travel again…we keep the dream alive with a blazer that is built for transcontinental trips. Easily worn with a white shirt, but the personality really comes through when worn with pattern, such as our batik henley shown here. Pick-stitching throughout, separates from the ordinary khaki blazers we see around. Ticket pocket for when you listen to impulse and jump on the metrotren from Santiago. Center back vent. Interior loop for eyeglasses. Partially lined in our signature yarn-dyed ikat stripe fabric. See more details on our website. Classic fit. 100% linen. Machine wash. Imported.
I am 74 years old, 5ft 9", 200 lbs, so for tummy I needed XL, that left shoulders 2.5" too wide where arms connect and sleeves too long so my local seamstress will make it right. Otherwise great.
Item at XL is a little large and will require sleeve shortening. Otherwise very comfortable, quality fabric, and nice stitching. I will keep the large version for more formal occasions and return the XL Long.
The coat was perfect except that it was far too long for my frame. I returned it within 24 of its receipt. it took well over a month and 3 phone calls to finally receive the credit due me. The typical excuse was that "it was in the warehouse" but the most rroubling was " we have had some problems with our internal management". i requested and spoke with a manager who could offer no more help. This was an item in excess of $200 and it carried over to my next credit card billing cycle. Having been a loyal customer for a number of years, I am disappointed at the level of service and will think twice before purchasing from you again. You are also in the minority of quality of retailers who charges to ship an item back for credit. Tihis is disappointing as has been your company.
it was too big for me, so I returned it requesting one size samller. Instead I received and email saying my credit card had been adjusted to refund the purchase price. Nice coat, poor service.
